Open Submission Selected Artists for BOM Exhibition


I'm pleased to announce that I'll be working with the following artists as part of the JHB Archive 23/1961 or 28/1961 exhibition at BOM in September.

Alison Carlier
Briony Clarke
Christoph Bangert
David Penny
Dorothea Nold
Giada Totaro
Jacqueline Butler
Jane Ball
Jane Hoodless
Janet Farahar
Karl Bielik
Kate V Robertson
Katherine di Turi
Michael Lightbourne
Pete Ashton
Sayako Sugawara
Steve Carrick
Tete de Alencar
Tom Milnes
Wiebke Leister

The artists have been selected by a panel consisting of Caitlin Griffiths, Myself and Karen Newman from an open submission opportunity funded by Arts Council England's Grants for the Arts.

The selected artists work in a diverse range of media and all artists presented a high quality and original proposal which responds to the brief of a sculpture belonging to JHB that was lost by Nuneaton Museum and now exists only as the data stored on the accession record, until September when the sculpture will be reimagined in 20 new forms.

The exhibition opens with a preview at BOM (Birmingham Open Media), 1 Dudley Street, Birmingham on 10th September from 6-8pm then runs from 11th September – 3rd October 2015.

 


Museum of London workshops


I'll be leading a workshop in pinhole photography this Saturday, 18th July at Museum of London as part of events surrounding their exhibition of work by Christina Broom, one of the first female photojournalists working at the turn of the century.

The workshop will give participants an insight into the techniques Broom was using as well as providing an opportunity for you to make and photograph with a cardboard pinhole box camera. The negative images produced will then be printed using both analogue and digital smartphone techniques.

Swiss Cottage Gallery Pinhole photography workshop


I'll be running a free Pinhole photography workshop at Swiss Cottage Gallery as part of Cityread London on Sunday May 16th 2015. Come along for a chance to make your own camera using recycled materials and photograph the area around the gallery using slow exposures to create a ghostly vision of London which links with Cityread's focus on Ben Aaronovitch's 'Rivers of London'. More information is here.

Project Daguerreotype Blog


I've set up the blog ProjectDag to record my progress as I begin to work with Daguerreotypes this year as the project is gaining momentum and needs its own space.
